This designated quantity on complicated teach keep watch over structures (ATCS) contains chosen papers from the hugely winning COMPRAIL convention sequence on railways and different transit structures. complicated educate regulate platforms are enjoying a massive function in enhancing the potency and security of educate operation, performing as their "brains and nerves." Computer-based ATCS's make railways extra trustworthy and more secure. usually, those structures include 4 components: the imperative regulate process; the station keep an eye on structures and wayside platforms; the on-board keep an eye on structures; and the conversation community, together with cellular verbal exchange. From the viewpoint of the complete lifecycle, an ATCS comprises layout and improvement; re-design for a different line software; simulation verification and trying out; and defense review of the approach and subsystems. those suggestions are recognized to people who are accustomed to usual ATCS reminiscent of ETCS, CTCS for major line railways and CBTC for transit platforms.

It is obvious that OCS is modular configuration, in addition to the vital computer. The reliable and safety mobile communication system is the foundation of a CBTC system. The concept about moving block system (CBTC is also called as moving block system) was put forward in 1960. It is not possible for a CBTC system to be implemented until the reliable, safe mobile communication appears. Advanced Train Control Systems 41 Traditional track circuits cannot satisfy with the communication requirements of train and wayside in a CBTC.
Data concerning train position and speed are sent to BCS. The permissive speed of train operation is received by OCS . In a CBTC system, OCS must be safer and more intelligent compared with OCS in the traditional train control system. SCS, BCS and OCS must be failsafe and reliable. CNS must be satisfied with the requirements of real time, safety and reliable data transmission in CBTC systems. For CCS, there is no failsafe requirement since it does not directly control train operation, but it is reliable .
